Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever

27 Apr

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever

As many of our readers know, I am a HUGE Aqua Teen Hunger Force fan.

After C2E2, it seems there is some sad news for fans of the show.

When talking about the new upcoming 11th season of Aqua Teen (which starts June 21 on Adult Swim and will be called ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever‘), creator Dave Willis announced that this season will be its last.

What a killer blow to my happiness right after my birthday (also this month).

Ugh.

I’ve just always felt like no matter how bad things got in life, or in general, that Aqua Teen would always be there for me. It has always brightened my day, inspired laughter with its insane absurdity, and provided a constant happy place for me in my life.

Maybe I’ve just never had a television show I’ve loved this much come to an end.

But Aqua Teen is definitely that show.

It’s one of my favorite things in the world– right up there with my lovely wife or a big juicy steak.

I do want to posit the possibility that this whole ‘final season’ thing is a joke, since the ATHF guys are always joking about stuff and screwing around (with the show’s title, characters, etc). But Aqua Teen IS Adult Swim’s longest running show (since 2001). Maybe they’ve just decided to hang it up.

More than a few people think that this cancellation/ending is happening because the unaired Aqua Teen episode “Boston” leaked onto YouTube, and Ted Turner previously vowed to cancel the show if that episode ever appeared anywhere. (Does Ted still care about that all these years later? Is he really that much of a jerk?? Maybe.)

Regardless, Turner DID just sign a multi-year contract with Hulu, which means that Aqua Teen episodes will be able to be viewed there (along with Regular Show episodes!) This is a cool development, but of little consolation to me, since it looks quite possible my favorite TV show ever is coming to an end.

A while back, the Aqua Teen guys did promise us a second full-length film (tentatively titled ‘Death Fighter‘) that was to be a sequel to the first ATHF movie (‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters‘). So… I don’t know how that’s going to play out. Maybe the intended plot of that movie was worked into this final season..?

If this is really the end, I can only hope that this final season of Aqua Teen Hunger Force (Forever) will be amazing, and let the series go out with a bang.

I’m sure it will.

In every season of Aqua Teen, there are episodes that are duds and episodes that are gems– just like any TV show, or like anything else in life.

And for the record, I have truly loved them all.

We’re psyched (and sad) for the 11th season of Aqua Teen, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever, which begins airing June 21 at midnight on Adult Swim.

Ren and Stimpy

REN AND STIMPY!

Wanted to write quickly about the new/upcoming cartoons here in a few days.

For those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter (you should!) I’ve mentioned a few things lately.

They have been showing Ren and Stimpy marathons on Nickelodeon (NickToons) lately, which has been EXCELLENT!

It’s always been one of my favorite cartoons – it’s amazing – weird, and funny, and perfect. Billy West!!

I also believe there was a couple of new SpongeBobs on Nick today, and they were great.

Finally, in adult swim news from Dave Willis himself, new ATHF episodes start in May, and new Squidbillies in September, although they’re trying to move the Squids’ date up!

So much great news!
